Time Kills


“Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky” is a 1991 Hong Kong martial arts film written and directed by Lam Nai-choi. Based on the Japanese manga. The film is notorious for its excessive use of graphic violence and gore, primarily due to the fact that the lead character “Ricky” is practically invincible, has superhuman strength and can virtually withstand all pain.

The film was never released in the United States or in Europe, but is available on DVD. About 13 years ago I saw this film for the first time. An old Turkish school friend gave me the film on VHS tape. Since then, I adore this silly, yet entertaining splatter madness.
